I only discovered baking with yoghurt a short while back and love the results you get. I was not planning to do another recipe so soon again after the Lemon Yoghurt Cake, but this recipe for an Apple Yoghurt Cake came out just too good not to share. Just after I had made the Lemon Yoghurt Cake I posted a few weeks ago, I came across this Lemon Yoghurt Apple Cake on Pinterest. It looked so delicious, it immediately went…

I only recently started baking with yoghurt and I must say I love the results it delivers. I like that the cake texture is a bit more denser but at the same time still remains light and moist.

I am a huge fan of the Great British Bake Off. It is by far my favourite cooking contest show and I am always in awe of what the contestants create while wishing I can bake as well as they do.

I did not want to bake a traditional cheesecake neither wanted to use gelatin so used a base of condensed milk and lemon juice to set the mixture. I drained the yoghurt overnight to make sure the filling is as thick as possible since I was not using any gelatin. Just line a…

These cakes are divine! I had wanted to make David Lebovitz’s Orange Syrup Cake since reading about it on his blog in April and when I saw clementines available on Sunday morning it was the perfect time to get some and start baking. I then remembered Sam Linsell’s Clementine Upside Down Cakes and decided (bravely) to combine the recipes and make my own Clementine Almond Cakes.
